Running a Toshiba SG20 as my webserver

Hi, I am completely new to linux.

I was given a Toshiba Magnia SG20 server, but do not know how to use it as a webserver.

I heard I had to install webmin, but have no idea how to install.

The SG20 has no screen/videocard, keyboard or mouse. I can access it via my (windows XP) network and via explorer ( If I access it via explorer I get the toshiba menu, where I can't do anything but create the running options for the server it self (WAN, LAN etc.)

I would like to put my own website on the server (currently running on Apache on a webbased server.....)

This would mean I have to install things like MySQL etc.

I have no idea what to do..... is there a way to install applications like Apache, linux redhat (both should be available on the SG20 already.... but I have no clue about this) perl, MySQL etc. via Windows XP onto the server?

Is there anyone that knows how the Magnia SG20 works?

Thanks in advance

This server accepts ssh connections. So, you have to install a ssh client into your XP box, log in to your server and ... start learning CLI stuff. I do not use Red Hat myself, but I'm sure there is some good documentation available at redhat web site.
